Ryan Vogelsong is out of the game. Nobody is complaining, though.
Vogelsong, who gave up just one run in his seven innings and was finally pulled after throwing 106 pitches, is the first Giant in this postseason to post a Quality Start. In the bottom of the seventh, Cardinals rookie Shelby Miller kept the Giants off the scoreboard once more; they haven't scored since the fourth inning.
In that regard, this game is looking a lot like Game 1, in which the bullpens took over and nobody scored at all after the fourth inning. The difference is that the Cardinals took the early lead in Game 2, but this time the Giants went ahead early.
Now it's the top of the eighth, and Bruce Bochy is turning first, as he so often does to left-hander Jeremy Affeldt. He and whoever follows will be trying to protect the Giants' 3-1 lead, and even this series at one apiece.
